Synopsis

The legend and white-washed life of the 19th-century Englishwoman turned national heroine as a battlefield nurse during the Crimean War, teaming Jaclyn Smith with an all-British cast. Claire Bloom and Jeremy Brett are her socially prominent parents, and Timothy Dalton (replacing Michael York, initially announced for the role) as the handsome young chap she dumps for a career in nursing. Previously, the Florence Nightingale story had been interpreted by Kay Francis in "The White Angel" (1936) and Anna Neagle in "The Lady With the Lamp" (1951). This three-hour account was co-produced by Jaclyn Smith's husband, Tony Richmond.
